Caption: Extrasolar planet Gliese 1214b, artwork. View across the surface of the planet Gliese 1214b (GJ 1214b) towards its host star GJ 1214 on the horizon. This planet lies around 40 light-years from Earth in the constellation Ophiuchus. It is classed as a super-Earth because it is bigger in mass and radius to the Earth but much smaller than the gas giants in the solar system. In 2013, observations by the Subaru Telescope indicate that the planet may have a water-rich atmosphere.
